    Ok so the pups r now 5 weeks old, yikes, we have had TV blaring, hoover going, they been outside when planes have been descending (sometimes on flight path NCL airport lol), have radio on in there someitmes, also setting up CD player 2nite to play a few CD's of loud noises, i.e rain, hail, thunder, fireworks and gunshots, great CD called "Sounds Scary" which i've loaned from a mate who is a dog trainer, have my own personal dog trainer lol, she has everything which is handy :D

    Just want to do the best for them b4 they leave me at 8 weeks, I think desensitising them to loud noises is a great idea, they r very much part of the every day household hustle and bustle, but want to think of more things to do so they r basically bomb proof :D

    So if u have any other great ideas, please share :)

    What about hairdryer?Although my pup has never been near me whilst drying my hair lol. What about dishwasher or washing machine/tumble dryer? I know some people recommend dropping pans and things like that as well

    Do you crate train? Or advising new owners to crate train?

    If you are, maybe introduce that if you haven't already :)

    Anyone in a wheelchair or a walker you can get involved or even borrow them for a while? Maybe a baby or get a cd of a baby crying the noise tends to startle dogs
